Bulleit Bourbon has just released Bulleit 10 Years Old, the first selected reserve to be released from the brand. Aged in charred American white oak, several barrels of Bulleit were set aside to see how they would develop over the course of ten years. The results? The distillers were thrilled, as was Tom Bulleit.
“I may be biased, but I think Bulleit Bourbon is incredible at its traditional age of five to eight years,” said Tom Bulleit, “but it’s exciting to see what happened to a select number of barrels aged a little longer. The result was a special expression of our family’s bourbon that exceeded our expectations and we knew we had to bottle it and share it with our loyal fans.”
Bulleit offered these tasting notes:
Appearance: Dark brown color with a reddish-orange tinge.
Nose: Classic aromas of rich, toasty oak with hints of light vanilla and sweet, dried fruit.
Taste: Off-dry with spice, caramel and notes of dried fruit. An exceptional blend that maintains the inherent rye content throughout and possesses a long finish that is smooth and mellow with flavor nuances carrying through to the end.
Bulleit 10 comes in at 91.2 proof. It is available nationally with a suggested retail price of $44.99.
